Manzanillo

General information

The growth of this beautiful Mexican port has benefited the travel industry with the construction of important hotel complexes, as well as top-level golf courses. Its tranquil beaches, like La Audiencia and Miramar, offer relaxation and a chance to dream, while its open beaches, like Olas Altas or Santiago, are an invitation to surf or paddleboard. The Sailfish Sculpture by the Mexican artist Sebastian stands out splendidly at the end of the boardwalk in the “heart” of the city. This work of art does justice to the harbour, considered the “Sailfish Capital of the World”. Manzanillo is located in the State of Colima, 90 km (55.923 mi ) south of the state capital, in the southwestern Pacific coast region, 804 km (500 mi) west of Mexico City, 299 km (185 mi) from Guadalajara and 281 km (177.09 mi) from Puerto Vallarta.

Tourist attractions of Manzanillo

Santiago Bay

Santiago Bay

Santiago Bay stretches along about 20 km (12 mi) of coastline and is 15 km (9 mi) from Manzanillo. Beautiful beaches with a moderate swell, as La Audiencia, Santiago, Olas Altas, Miramar and La Boquita, are scattered along this bay.

Manzanillo Bay

Manzanillo Bay

Surrounded by rock formations and hills which have created stunning bays and coves with fine sandy beaches, a gentle swell and crystal-clear waters. The bay consists of La Boquita, Miramar, Santiago, Audiencia, Hadas, Brisas, Ventanas, San Pedrito, Salahua.

La Audiencia Beach

La Audiencia Beach

It is the first beach certified as “Clean Beach” in the state of Colima. Ideal for scuba diving, paddleboard, kayaking or jet-skiing. The slope and waves are always low, which allows finding tropical fish, large octopus and colourful marine vegetation. From the lighthouse, you can enjoy beautiful panoramic views of Manzanillo and Santiago bays.

Sport fishing

Sport fishing

Manzanillo is known as the Sailfish Capital of the World. It is the host city for the Dorsey International Tournament that takes place in November, and as a result, sport fishing has become internationally popular. Sailfish and dorado can be caught all year round, while marlin and tuna fish abound from November to March. Manzanillo’s advantage over other harbors is that a short 15-minute trip from land is all that is required for visitors to start fishing.
